The Black Onyx exterior with medium gray cladding shows very well for the age of this LX470. There are no signs of corrosion whatsoever and the trim is fully intact and free from cracks and misalignments. Exterior imperfections include scattered rock chips on the front, subtle scratches on multiple panels as well as some small dings located just beyond the driver’s side rear door and lower left tailgate. Overall, the body contains average wear for a vehicle of this age.
The Stone Gray interior has held up very well over the years. The leather seating shows very minimal wear, mostly on the driver’s side. This wear is contained to small cracks in the leather and very slight discoloration. There are no rips or tears in the first two rows of seating. The folding third row is in very good condition with the exception of a minute rip on the lower, inner section of the right-hand seat (see photos).
The carpeting has maintained its texture and color with the exception of some light staining under the rear floor mats. Both carpeted and rubber Lexus factory floor mats are installed and both sets are in very nice shape. The carpeted rear cargo mat is also very clean with minimal wear present. The headlinder is full intact and free from stains and markings.
All interior electronics have been tested including Bluetooth phone connectivity, power antenna, navigation, DVD, premium sound system, power windows and locks, rear power venting windows, moonroof, power heated seats, A/C, heat and cruise control.
This LX is also equipped with Lexus’ Night View, which was the world’s first active automotive “night vision” system utilizing an infrared camera built into the lower portion of the front bumper. During night driving, you can project information to the head-up display on the windshield. The entire system works as it should including the brightness control.
The chassis is in unbelievable condition. It maintains the black factory finish with no signs of corrosion. The brakes are in very nice shape as are the 18” wheels, which show very minor scuffing. The AHC suspension adjusts through all positions with ease and the high/low transfer case shifts flawlessly along with the center differential lock.
This LX470 runs and drives very well both on and off-road. Recent maintenance includes the following:
